Need help please. I have attempted to write a phrase that will return stocks that have been above a certain minimum volume over a period of time. An example is: "volume has been above 100000 for a minimum of 26 weeks". This returns at least one stock that this does not match: "NAB" whose volume was 5900 shares on 4/17.

You need to say it like this: "average weekly volume(26) is above 100000". I personally would use "average daily volume(insert the # of days) is above 100000".

Thanks for the input. Is there a way to select minimum volume as opposed to average volume?

You could say "average daily volume(10) is between _____ and _____" -or- "average daily volume is above ________".

I look for stocks above a certain volume to ensure that I can readily exit a position when my target is reached. Using the above statements already defines your minimum volume requirements,.... unless you want to eliminate consideration if it goes below that volume for say just one day. In this case try using 1 in parentheses instead of 10.

hunte and tuff,

Isn't it easier to just type: "volume above xxxxx"
You can insert whatever numbers you want in place of xxxxxx.

This works for me; hope it works for you?

Joe
